Convocation – literally, “a calling together” – is when we come together to celebrate our graduating students and applaud their many achievements.
Saturday, May 13, 2017
Family and friends welcome at all activities. No tickets required.
The ceremony and reception will be held at Northwestern Medicine’s Prentice Women’s Hospital at 250 E Superior St. in Chicago – Lavin Bernick Room & Harris Family Atrium. The atrium is located on the third floor.
Do I need tickets for the Kellogg Convocation?
No. There is no limit on the number of people you may invite.
PARKING AND TRANSPORTATION
How do we get from the reception to the convocation ceremony?
Because parking is limited in the Northwestern Chicago campus, we recommend parking at the Huron Superior and Erie Ontario parking garages. View downtown campus map here

What should people wear?
Some students dress very casually because they will be wearing robes during the ceremony. Others dress in business casual attire because they plan to take photos and will be going out to dinner afterwards. We recommend that you dress in light clothing -- the robes can be quite warm.
There will be a professional photographer present.
